We get warranted flack for focusing much of our coverage on central Charlotte so I’m sending some love to the other four cardinal directions — starting on the west side.

For the most part, I focused my roundup on local restaurants west of I-77, south of I-85 and north of Billy Graham Parkway. Let me know if I missed your favorite and stay tuned for restaurants in east Charlotte next.
